Kunst met een grote K
De Stip

De leerlingen van KS2 werken als ware artiesten aan hun stipgedichten en kunstige stippen. Alles mag en alles kan in het kader van de vrije expressie en zo lang het de taal verrijkt!

Op dinsdag 16 mei brengen we een bezoek aan de tentoonstelling van Peter Riezebos. De leerlingen krijgen les over kunstbeschouwing: ‘Kijken naar Kunst met een grote K’. Peter leidt ons zelf rond en de leerlingen krijgen zowel inhoudelijke als artistieke opdrachten.

Year 5 en 6 werken ook nog aan de afronding van hun kunstzinnige verhalen, passend bij een kunstwerk van een Belgische of Nederlandse kunstenaar. Magritte en Van Gogh zijn de grote favorieten.

Zeer binnenkort (afhankelijk van het afronden van de kunstwerken, verhalen en gedichten) zijn alle ouders van harte welkom op de opening van onze kunstzinnige expositie. Informatie volgt!
